It's debate day, which is to say that it's time for the traditional media to tell you that there might possibly be some news later on, so just stay tuned. And if there isn't any, we'll make some up. Greg Dworkin rounded up the real, already-happened news in today's polling segment. We took calls from Tomtech on his low-cost, grassroots ad campaigns in Texas, and OllieGarkey on the dangers and nuances of mixing politics and religion. And finally, we peeked in on the wingnuts frolicking in fantasy land, with their claims that "abortions" are frequently performed on women who aren't even pregnant, and that an already-circulated 2007 videotape of then-Senator Barack Obama saying non-controversial stuff is somehow, suddenly, the worstest thing ever, not to mention a perfectly valid reason for white dudes to do Amos & Andy impressions on the air.
